Been a busy time in the editing bays with a bunch of new surf films all about to tour. Whatever corner of the surf world you lurk, there's a new release to elicit thrills.

This weekend, James Kates' and Noa Deane's film 'Mash' has three straight dates:

Then another filmer/surfer pairing starts its tour: Dave Fox and Harry Bryant with 'Motel Hell' - "an exercise in absurdity" is how Big Dav describes it:

  • Friday 17th Novermber, Anita's Theatre, Thirroul
  • Sunday 19th November, Cinema Nova, Lygon Street, Carlton
  • Tuesday 21st November, The Exchange Hotel, Hamilton
  • Saturday 25th November, Land and Sea Brewery, Noosaville

Two worthy films, two worthy promo posters, both created by Luke Player

As mentioned elsewhere on Swellnet, Ishka and Torren will shortly begin a run of live screeenings for 'Calypte':

  • Byron Theatre - November 17th - 5.30pm & 8.00pm - Pre-purchase tickets online

More so, I'm feeling like my hide's been stuffed and mounted.

Cheers Pete.
